Don’t Google it – GoCompare it! Google mobile phone deals. You might’ve heard that the Google gurus have made smartphones. But what mobile phone deals can you get for a Google smartphone?
You can get a variety of mobile phone deals for Google mobile phones, like pay as you go, contract and sim-only. Now we’re going to unscramble some mobile phone jargon for you, to help you figure out which mobile phone plan might be the right one for you.
A contract means you pay a fixed amount each month, for a set period of time (usually 12 or 24 months). Your contract package will cover the cost of a Google phone and an allowance of texts, calls and mobile internet data.
There might be an upfront payment before your contract starts to help pay off the cost of the handset. Don’t forget that you’ll have to pass a credit check to be eligible for a mobile phone contract.
A sim-only deal provides an allocation of calls, texts and data, for a monthly fee. The chief difference between sim-only and a contract is that you don’t get a mobile phone handset with a sim-only plan.
With pay as you go (PAYG), you have to buy credit to top up your phone before you use it. This credit pays for calls, texts and using your mobile data. And when the credit runs out, you’ll need to top up your phone to use it again. It's worth mentioning that you can't get PAYG deals via GoCompare. And also that this option tends to suits less frequent mobile users.
It won’t surprise you to know that we recommend comparing different mobile phone tariffs to see what option suits you best, and which provider has the most suitable plan for your budget.
Making sure you fully understand the deal you’ve chosen is also a good idea. If you need more information about specific plans, the provider should be able to break it down further for you.
Finally, don’t be fooled into buying something you don’t need. Providers may try to upsell you, meaning you get a more expensive Google phone or plan with features you don’t need. The only person that can tell you exactly what you need out of your mobile is you.
Right, now we’re going to take a break and explore the world vicariously, through Google Maps street view.
